With an impressive career working for giants of the tech industry like Facebook, Google and Yahoo, Jennifer reveals her secrets to creating engaged, successful teams and transforming your work relations. We talk about the source of her power and inspiration (her strong parents and the people and stories that she witnessed while growing up) and her take on how leadership has evolved in our current times.   Time stamps: 00:46- Introducing Jennifer Dulski; 01:45- Growing up in San Francisco in the 80s and getting exposure to different people and experiences have impacted her view of the world and became the inspiration for her later work; 07:55- College life, becoming National Champion as a Coxswain on the Women's Crew Team, and the start and motivation behind her career; 12:28- Her time at Yahoo, building her startup and after failing three times, managing to sell it to Google; 19:49- Making a difference- getting involved in the Change.org Foundation; 23:59- Creating Rising Team (a company that empowers managers to build more engaged, connected and successful teams) and her take on how “leadership” has evolved in current times; 30:01- Factors that lead to high-performing teams and high engaging employees (psychological safety, guiding people to understand and work towards their natural talents and making them feel appreciated); 36:28- Learning how to be a movement starter and transform your work relations- her book “Purposeful”. Quotes “I feel like growing up in San Francisco gave me what I call exposure privilege, you know being able to see and experience a lot of different things and backgrounds, and people. I also grew up in the 80s, in the AIDS crisis in San Francisco, which was really a pretty big part of my childhood (...).” “ I have this mantra I use in my life, which is “Every person is a teacher, every experience is a lesson.” You can look all around you and just see those lessons everywhere, and in fact,(...) the most popular piece that I wrote on Linkedin is a piece I wrote about my dad. It’s called “Don’t Work With Jerks- Five lessons I learned from my dad.” “ My mom was a multi-time cancer survivor and in her late 20s, she had surgery that ended up paralyzing half of her face. Imagine a woman in the 70s whose not even quite 5 feet tall with half her face paralyzed, trying to get into a new career, and she did it, after like 50 interviews she ended up getting a job as a  compensation consultant and had a super successful career after that (...). As a female founder in tech, there are days that feel like that for me too.” “ The reason why I got into tech was because I loved making an impact, I could see it in the kids that were coming through this program that we were making an impact and at the same time, the scale was going to be very linear, I could raise twice as much money and we could serve just about twice the students and at this time it was the dawning of the internet and I just saw it and I thought, this is where the scale of impact is, I have to get into tech cause this is how you reach more people.” “Just so people don’t only hear like the pretty, fancy side of selling a startup, that company probably failed at least three times before we succeeded. I sometimes call myself too stubborn to fail because I think a lot of people would have just gone home.” ______________________________ Get in contact with Jennifer: Rising Team Website Linkedin Twitter Facebook Her book- Purposeful ______________________________ Mentions: AIDS crisis Top Gun: Maverick Yahoo Facebook Google Change.org a worldwide petition website, based in California, US, operated by the San Francisco-based company of the same name, which has over 400 million usersand offers the public the ability to promote the petitions they care about to potential signers, including 196 countries which are "creating change" in their communities.
